Nutella Stuffed Deep Disk Skillet Cookie – Pizookie!

A Skillet Cookie that’s stuffed with Nutella?  Heck yeah!

I’m all about any kind of chocolate dessert and these chocolate chip cookie pies are really popular right now and why not? 

What an awesome idea, a huge chocolate chip cookie, smothered in ice cream and every kind of chocolate sauce and butterscotch sauce – heavenly right?

The first time I made this recipe was last March – we had a family dinner, so it was a good time to try it out.

What an awesome idea, a huge chocolate chip cookie, stuffed with nutella, smothered in ice cream and every kind of chocolate sauce and butterscotch sauce – heavenly right? 

Think soft baked chocolate chip cookie dough pie!

The kids and my husband loved it – and the recipe was easy enough – you just mixed everything in a cast iron skillet and then popped it in the oven. 

But I thought the cookie was kind of dry so decided I would try again.

In my research I found lots of cookie recipes, so I decided that I would use a regular chocolate chip cookie recipe I had with just one little modification.

Nutella Stuffed Cookie Pie ~ Pizookie?

The modification?  Yep you guessed it. 

I decided that I was probably the only food blogger in the world – well maybe North America – who wasn’t making recipes with Nutella in them. 

Not by choice you understand, I just didn’t get what all the fuss was about.  But pieladybakes.com is not about me!  It’s about what my readers – YOU – want to see!

So I stuffed my cookie with a huge scoop of Nutella – come to think of it probably two scoops. 

OMG!  I think you are really gonna love this recipe!

I had to bake the cookie a little longer – another 10 minutes.  Once it cooled a bit I added some ice cream – do you have Moose Tracks ice cream where you live? 

It’s so awesome full of peanut butter cups and other good stuff.

Then I drenched the skillet cookie with my special Salted Caramel Sauce.  The combination of chocolate chip cookie, chocolate, ice cream, hazelnut chocolate and salted caramel – well the result is kinda perfect if you ask me.

So I now understand why people are so passionate about Nutella!!

Nutella Stuffed Skillet Cookie & Kindness?

You may be wondering:

What does kindness have to do with a skillet cookie?

Let me tell you…

Kindness has been on my mind more than usual  this week.

Some call it ‘pay it forward’, or ‘lightening someone’s load’, that kind of thing. 

We are bombarded every day with crisis after crisis. I think that’s why we begin to notice small acts of kindness.

So when I saw someone give a cold bottle of water to a homeless person on my way to work, I reacted in kind and gave some money to the next homeless person I encountered.  I’ve done this before to be sure, but not with as much thought.

And in a world where the news feeds are often filled with fear and hate these days, I remembered a post one of my friends shared with me on Facebook – well me and probably several thousand of her other friends.

It was about a man who was sitting in McDonald’s watching a young woman with her little boy.  She was feeding him his Happy Meal and she looked really hungry.  So the man anonymously ordered her lunch. 

I’m sure you’ve seen it but if you haven’t here is a link….  the part that resonated with me was – Life is hard. Always be willing to make someone’s life a little easier. Little things make a big impact.” There it was.

I carried that feeling closely with me all week and I really wanted to share it.  I hope it lightens your day too and that this nutella stuffed pizookie sweetens it!
